Medwedeff Forge & Design produces large-scale public and site-specific sculpture, sculpture for exhibitions, and high-end architectural pieces for commercial, museum, public and residential projects. John Medwedeff established his studio in 1988 in Murphysboro, IL. His 6000 square foot space encompasses all of the equipment of a contemporary sculpture studio, a traditional blacksmith shop, as well as industrial metalworking technologies. A 30-foot tall crane bay allows for the vertical construction of very large pieces. 

John Medwedeff designs and directs each project. He moves complex projects from the design stage through installation, coordinating efforts with those of clients, community arts groups, architects and general contractors while guaranteeing the master craftsmanship of finished work.


Most work is created on commission. If you would like to discuss commissioning a work for your city, business, home or other site, contact us at 618.521.7429 or e-mail
